Terrible Stay
I was very unhappy with my stay & I won't ever go back. No one took the time to check my room to see if it was ready & my t.v wasn't working nor was the phone. I was out of tissue. I had to look at 2 other rooms and I asked if I could get an discount since I wasn't staying in my original room. I was informed no, the next room wasn't better I was told that I could return to my original room day 2 but then we found bed bugs in the original room. I had to fight to get my full refund & find another hotel for my stay.
